Mad Max: Fury Road

Director George Miller (director of the first three Mad Max's and, um, Happy Feet) brings the dystopian classic of Australian New Wave cinema back, with Tom Hardy as Max. Co-stars Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

Set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is fighting over the necessities of life. There are two rebels who can restore order: there’s Max (Hardy), and Furiosa (Theron) - a woman who believes her path to survival is across the desert, back to her homeland.

Winner of 6 Oscars (Editing, Production Design, Costumes, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, Make-Up and Hair) at the 2016 Academy Awards; Best Editing, Production Design, Costume Design and MakeUp/Hair at the 2016 BAFTA Awards

"Worth the wait" still seems a puny response to the two hours of ferocious, unfettered B-movie bliss offered by Mad Max: Fury Road.

The maxed-out madness of Mad Max sets an extraordinarily high bar - then pole-vaults clean over it and smashes the entire rig to smithereens.

Exhilarating... Pretty much the entire film is a screaming death race down Fury Road.

Miller pours his heart and soul into some truly visionary and gonzo sequences of vehicular carnage. Kinetic, yet oddly distancing, the film pummels you into awed submission.

This madly entertaining new action extravaganza energetically kicks more ass, as well as all other parts of the anatomy, than any film ever made by a 70-year-old - and does so far more skillfully than those turned out by most young turks half his age.

Max's re-enfranchisement is a triumph of barking-mad imagination, jaw-dropping action, crackpot humour, and acting in the face of a hurricane.

Fantastic action set pieces and beautifully filmed but with absolutely no story whatsoever.

I went to this movie with the lowest expectations I have ever reserved for a movie but I left thinking this has made it to my top 10 if not top 5 list. I was initially anti this movie as in the trailer it looked so damn weird. But like they always say 'don't judge a book by it's cover' or in this case a movie by it's trailer. It was fast paced, action...

What can I say? Being a big fan of the originals, my expectations weren't perticularly high, so I wasn't disppointed for that reason. But I certainly was disapointed... Max wasn't nearly Mad enough (just surly and miserable, like an overgrown teenager) and it was virtually impossible to have any empathy with him or any of the characters. Pretty much spent...

Mad Max - Fury Road Wow, hasn’t the kid from ‘About A Boy’ changed a lot! To me this film is not so much a remake of Mel Gibson’s starting fame, but kinda of more ‘Mad Max2 - Road Warrior’. The next film actually being the prequel to this, the start of Max’s madness, because the short 2min narration at the start is just not enough to get newbies into the...

Horrible macho movie, dumb acting, childish concept. For one example baddies appear sick and toothless the goodies look healthy and well fed. The only probably realistic is the obvious stupidity of the female models.

I didn't get it. They run one way, chased by baddies, then another. Edgy in a way modern dance tries to be edgy. I wanted to punch the guitarist. Reminded me a lot of the first Transformers - amazing visuals, but lacking substance.

Great documentary on Australian culture. Bob Hawe even got a mention - as the Bullet Farmer LOL This has made reality too boring and slow to be real any more. I need the Coma Doof Warrior playing behind me on my drive to work in the morning!!! And maybe i need to get a new mechanic because my current one wont put in supercharged twin v8 engines under the...
